For the garden-loving Mom, we have a wide variety of plant starts and seeds to help her create the vegetable or flower garden she's been dreaming of. And don't forget to grab some beautiful plant stakes from Marion Pollmann Clay Art to help her keep track of her favorites. Does she love garden art? Consider a bird feeder/water dish from Great Things in Glass.

Give Mom a Self-Care Day

Create a custom gift box to pamper Mom! Miller Lavender has embroidered sachets and lavender-filled neck and eye pillows. Cascadia Terroir offers salves, lotions and hydrosols. Add some bath soak salts or a custom soap from Riverdance Soapworks. How about a candle from Long Life Candles or Silva House Market, owned by a mother and daughter team who hand-pour exquisite blends of soy wax candles here in the Pacific Northwest. Check out Rainchild Apothecary for all-natural, handcrafted skincare products or Eufloria Botanica for plant-based skin care, herbal tea, and self-care goods.

Does Mom like cashmere? Rowan Green Fiber Arts makes cashmere fingerless gloves, hats, scarves, hoods, and more using vintage cashmere and merino wool sweaters. More upcycled clothing can be found at Trnka. Trnka creates aprons, sweaters, dresses, blouses, and more. By stitching wool scraps together, Trnka creates scenes that depict flowers, mushrooms, and other whimsical nature scenes.
